Just Steps to the Beach!

"Slice of Life" is a unique and completely renovated duplex/bungalow located on the 3rd row (third house) from the beach. Walk out the door and past two houses to the public beach access located at the end of our street. It's about a one minute walk to have sand between your toes.

This 2 bedroom/1 bath bungalow is the north side of a duplex and an ideal getaway for couples and small families. The home is ground level so there are no stairs to climb. This is especially convenient for senior citizens and families with small children. The property was completely refurbished a few years ago. Some of the updates and additions include, new ceramic tile floors throughout, a completely new kitchen and appliances, new bathroom fixtures, including a new and expanded shower, a new central heat/air system, screened doors, an enclosed hot/cold outdoor shower, and a laundry.

***Full week rentals are from Sunday to Sunday.***


We also own the south side of this duplex (See VRBO Listing #755055).

The property is also 3rd row to the Bogue Sound at the opposite end of the street from the beach. There is a public water access there too and a good place to launch a kayak or just explore the sound.

A paved bike and walking path that spans the full length of Emerald Isle runs right beside Slice of Life.

The North Carolina Aquarium is located approximately 7 miles away and the Bogue Inlet Fishing Pier is approximately 5 miles away. In addition there are many other nearby activities. These include: Golf, Kayaking, Fishing, Shopping, Boating, Sightseeing, Miniature Golf, and a Movie Theater, to name a few.

Slice of Life is located in a residential/beach neighborhood. Emerald Isle is a family beach with no large crowds or nearby hotels.


Small Dogs (2 max/40 lbs. or less) are allowed with pre-approval and a non-refundable pet deposit. The pet deposit is $20 per night (per dog/2-max) for stays of less than a week, not to exceed $100, or $100 for a full week stay. If you are making a reservation, bringing your dog and staying less than a full week, this site will only show the $100 amount, no matter the length of stay. Please send me an email and I can enter the correct pet fee amount in the system based on the number of nights you will be staying.

Linens are included with full week stays, however guests may elect to bring their own which would reduce the rate by $80. Linens are provided by a local linen company and are delivered to the unit before arrival and picked up after departure. A linen package includes sheets for all beds, towels, washcloths, bath rug, and kitchen towels and dishcloths. ***In order to keep rates lower stays of less than a week do not include linens, however guests may add them to their reservation for an additional $80. Eighty dollars is what the linen company charges me.

                                                        We had a great time . Can't wait to return

                                                        What a wonderful week!!

                                                        Ladona G.Spotsylvania, VA

                                                        West is a great host. From the beginning, his communication was top notch. We couldnt have asked for a better owner to rent from.

                                                        The little duplex was spotless when we arrived and it immediately felt like home. It had everything we needed and was so comfy and nicely decorated inside.

                                                        Both showers, inside and out, were great! I dont know which one I liked best. The high speed internet worked perfectly and I was able to binge watch Netflix on my computer. The flat screen TVs were much used as well. The bed was comfortable and so were the couch and loveseat.

                                                        The walk to the beach was short enough that we were able to run back to the house to grab a drink or pick up a new book without it being a hassle.

                                                        I would definitely rent from West again. We fell in love with this little gem in Emerald Isle.

                                                        We had a wonderful week at Slice of Life and West was wonderful to work with! It is very clean and was perfect for us!

                                                        Comfy and close to beach!

                                                        ChristyChicago, Illinois

                                                        We had a lovely 5-day stay here recently. The house is just as described; clean, comfortable, updated and, most importantly, just steps from the beach. No disappointing surprises. The updated open floor plan is great; feels roomy, not cramped. West (the owner) was very responsive and helpful with questions we had about local restaurants, etc. Beds were comfortable; kitchen well supplied for our needs. And we especially liked the outdoor shower. We found a couple of things that weren't working properly and let West know; they were immediately replaced. That's a responsive owner. We loved our stay and would come back here in a New York minute to enjoy the slow Carolina pace. Thanks, West!


                                                        Rebecca F.

                                                        West was great from the beginning of the booking process until the day we checked out. It was a great experience, perfect location! We cannot wait to go back!

                                                        Perfect place for our Anniversary getaway

                                                        Myron W.

                                                        Slice of Life was the perfect place for my wife and I during our little beach getaway trip. The house was perfectly located with a short walk to the beach and across the road to the sound. After spending a full day on the beach, we would watch the sunset on the sound side. Also, West, the owner, made sure we had everything we needed with excellent communication and follow up. The place was well stocked and completely renovated, so we didn't really anything other than more time. Of course, that's how it always goes! Thanks for everything!
